  • a/pkgtools-14.2-noarch-9.txz
    In setup.80.make-bootdisk, create a first bootable active primary partition
    rather than using a filesystem on the unpartitioned device. Some BIOSes
    won't boot it otherwise. Thanks to Richard Narron.

  • a/grub-2.00-x86_64-5.txz
    Use correct GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY option in /etc/default/
    Thanks to Eugen Wissner.
  • a/mkinitrd-1.4.8-x86_64-7.txz
    Fixed detecting USB partition in init, added proper USB storage modules
    to mkinitrd, and added missing USB keyboard modules to to fix entering LUKS password with some
    newer USB keyboards. Thanks to Eric Hameleers.
  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.0-noarch-33.txz
    rc.S: In cryptsetup script, support supplying a password of “none”
    (interactive entry) for non-swap partitions to allow specifying additional
    options. Support a new option “discard” to pass the –allow-discards option
    to cryptsetup when unlocking a volume, which can potentially improve
    performance and longevity on some SSDs. Thanks to Nathan Wallace.

    Merged rc.S changes.
  • n/NetworkManager-1.2.2-x86_64-2.txz
    Install udev rules in the correct directory. Thanks to gmgf.
  • n/samba-4.4.4-x86_64-3.txz
    When installing, move any files existing in /etc/samba/private to
    /var/lib/samba/private, not just *.tdb files.
    Thanks to Maciej Goluchowski.
  • n/vsftpd-3.0.3-x86_64-3.txz
    Patched to handle NULL returns from recent glibc crypt(). Thanks to nixi.
